Arcodoro & Pomodoro - Dallas reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Need training on Opening Wine
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 1/18/2014
    Not impressed with visit this past week. Service was slow and place wasn't that busy. Waiter cracked off corks in 2 different bottles of wine, First one was returned corky. Never got menus until 20 plus minutes into the place. Had to ask about specials even though they had them on a table and were showing everyone else. Place has gone downhill from last visit. Menu had way too much seafood in my opinion.

    This place was good. I would come here again but that being said - it was a bit too quick for me. Drinks, apps, food, it just seemed like a non stop progression with very little time in between. It was good - not exactly outstanding but not a disappointment either. Wait staff needs more training.

    This is the first time we went to the new location at the Crescent. It's a terrific space, sophisticated but not stuffy. The service was excellent. It's not the traditional Italian place with a heavy emphasis on pasta. The menu is varied and has great choices, including good pasta.

    This was my first visit and chose it based on recommendations on Open Table. There was nothing wrong - but it was just OK, particularly for the price. My scallops and jumbo shrimp ($28) had two scallops and three breaded/lightly fried shrimp. The best thing we had was the dessert - forgot the name of it but it was one of their specialties. There was a VERY LOUD table of women two tables over (having a birthday party or something) - they were obnoxious and it took away from the ambiance of the restaurant.

    I went there for my anniversary with my wife and expecting good food. The ambience was okay but not very impressive, service was good and the attendant paid enough time to make us comfortable. The food was really really bad. I ordered lamb chops and I made sure with the waiter that its not sweet and it turned out super sweet n seemed more like a dessert. I would not return back to this restaurant, in my view Cheesecake factory is much better place than this.

    Our server, David, was knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. He knew we were in a slight rush to get to the symphony and adjusted his routine to accommodate us. We ordered the arugula pear salad and the clam soup to start. Both were good, the salad in particular was fresh and very lightly dressed. We both had the flounder special, which was excellent. David helped us with the wine selection and we chose a white that is made by the owner in Sardinia and it was perfect with the meal. A lovely night!

    the restaurant atmosphere was excellent. it looked so great and romantic. the rosemary focaccia and fried ravioli with wild boar was very good. unfortunately that's where the great reviews end. my husband and I had some very bad meals. he had the fish special which came with a whipped cauliflower side. I had ate whipped cauliflower before which is good but this restaurant made theirs very funky like slight fishy taste. just weird not good. I had the suckling pig which was partly dry and some parts moist. there was alot of cartilage to chew through. I didn't like how sweet the meat was either

    We had a group of six that dined there for my special birthday. I loved the ambience and the food. The bartender even made us a special champagne birthday drink using elderflower liqueur. Was fabulous. We ordered the special bread that is wonderful and we had to ask for it three times before we got it. And they served the coffee after the dessert was finished. Other than those two things it was a wonderful evening.

    Was here last night. Frankly speaking the food and appetizers were a little disappointing. Plus, our waiter kept telling us that the gift card we were using to pay had no money in it. When we came back home and called the 1-800 number, it had the full amount in it. Both me and my wife were disappointed by the food. The only thing good was the dessert. My wife gave the dessert 5 stars! But for a $120 dinner, it left a lot to be desired.

    We had another excellent experience at Arcodoro & Pomodoro. We split Wild Boar ravioli, each had our salad (both were excellent), Split the wild boar pasta (FABULOUS), Split the veal with wild mushroom and finished splitting gelato and fresh berries. It was all excellent. Selected the Family label Red and we suggest that you taste the Nocello. All in all a great evening.

    Dined here using a TravelZoo voucher with a party of four. Ordered a bottle of Sangiovese, and the server brought out a pinot grigio and proceeded to arge with me that the pinot grigio was a type sangiovese! Eventually, he went back to "check and make sure". Food was mediocre at best. Do not get the fried ravioli. must bland ravioli I've ever eaten. Lamb chops were nothing special. Founder was horrible. Sea scallops were decent.

    Disappointing. This was on my list to try for quite some time, but there are so many restaurants in Dallas! Restaurant week seemed like a good opportunity to check it out. They seated us in a back room with no ambience, they didn't offer the restaurant week menu, I had to ask. My first course sea bass carpaccio salad was good but my husbands fried ravioli was lukewarm as was our friends who were with us. My polenta/sausage was delicious but the others ordered wild boar ragu which was dry and just ok. Overall the experience was ok, not great and I don't think we will be back.

    We tried this place for Restaurant Week and was very disappointed. Even though this is an Italian restaurant, they didn't have any Italian options on their Restaurant Week menu (no spaghetti, lasagne, or entrees in alfrado/marinara sauce.) The service was terrible - we waited 10-15 minutes for our server to take our drink order. He cleared our dessert plates and then never came back, but continued to wait on other tables. We waited about 20 minutes and had to ask another server to bring us our check and even after that happened our server never came back to apologize. He allowed the other server to cash us out and we never saw him again. It wasn't even that busy. I will not be going back or recommending this place to friends.

    I had been a fan of Pomodoro when the 2 were separate restaurants, side by side. When they combined and moved, I wasn't happy with my first experience there. The visit this weekend to the newest location was amazing. Everything was wonderful. We were there for Restaurant Week and thought the menu was intriguing. It couldn't have been better. Our service was also spot on. I would definitely come back as well as recommend this restaurant.

Between the two of us, we recommend the Pollenta with Sausage and Pecorino as our favorite. Our server was wonderful and had an extensive knowledge of the menu and wine selection. We will definitely be returning.

    My Sweetie had me pick a place for date night. After reading some reviews I chose Arcodoro & Pomodoro. It was a lovely night so we chose to sit outdoors. It was pleasantly quiet. The service we received was outstanding. Our Waiter was very friendly and very professional. The food was absolutely superb. We would definitely recommend Arcodoro & Pomodoro to anyone looking for a romantic night out.

    Dined on 8/12/2013
    We attended A&P the first night of Restaurant Week. The set menu was superb, showcasing a variety of Sardinian cuisine. The wild boar ravioli, mussel risotto, and music bread with Sardinian cheese were highlights. We opted for the wine pairing - the Serenu served with the first course was an excellent white. The rest of the experience fell flat - the decor was generic without any wow factor, and the arrangement of the tables detracted from a romantic, private atmosphere. Our waiter seemed uncomfortable with the special menu, was too soft-spoken to communicate with, and got my entree order wrong. The manager compensated thoroughly for that mistake with extra wine and a free fourth course, but I expect more from restaurants at this level.

    This place is not bad, but it definitely could be better. Given the location and how nicely decorated the interior is the food should have matched it. We were let down. We had high expectations for this restaurant, and it fell flat. The food wasn't amazingly great or anything. I thought Maggiano's is better, and they don't charge $40/plate.
